EYFS Curriculum guidance for parents

The Early Years Foundation Stage At Gracelands Nursery School

A Guide for Our Parents

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the curriculum we follow. The areas of learning and development gave been produced by the government.

There are three characteristics of learning which underpin the curriculum we offer. They are:

 

Playing and exploring

Active learning

Creating and Thinking critically

 

We used the areas of learning and development when we are observing, assessing and planning for your child’s individual needs. This helps us to plan for their next steps which we call PLODs Possible Lines of Development. There are 7 areas of learning which are split into two, ‘Prime Areas’ and Specific Areas’

 

These are the 3 Prime areas:
